I’m an evolutionary biologist and ecologist interested in the processes that generate and maintain biological diversity, particularly in mountains. Now a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology in the Witt Lab at the University of New Mexico, I received my Ph.D. from the University of Washington, working in the Klicka Lab.
I’m also a freelance writer and photographer whose work has appeared in the The Los Angeles Review of Books, High Country News, and bioGraphic. I’ve written about wolves and democracy, recreation and conservation, and science and politics. You can read more about my research here, or see my publications, popular writing, and CV here.
